Culinary professionals know they can trust De Buyer to make hard-wearing, reliable kitchenware. Established in 1830, the French metal manufacturer has made pots, pans and baking equipment from a variety of materials, from copper to iron to steel, all with global success. This 12-hole madeleine pan is perfectly sized for the shell-shaped French delicacy that’s somewhere between a cookie and cake. The layout allows for optimum circulation of hot air, and the iron material diffuses heat for uniform cooking. Its non-stick coating—which works best when slightly greased—protects against oxidation and scraggly-looking cakes.
Why we love it
‘Yes, this pan is built for just one purpose—however, there are so many ways to vary madeleines that it does not feel that way. From simple lemon madeleines to savoury ones with sumac or blue cheese, the possibilities are endless.’
About The Brand
De Buyer is known internationally as a leader in professional and domestic cookware. Established in 1830, they have almost two centuries worth of experience in manufacturing metal (carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminium, and more), and are excellent at adapting their products for modern kitchens, as exemplified by their range of silicone bakeware and induction-compatible copper pots and pans. In 2009 the French Ministry for the Economy, Finance and Industry presented de Buyer with the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company) Award, which recognises the company’s artisanal traditions and industrial excellence.
We have long been fans of their carbon steel Mineral B frying pans, designed to quickly reach the high temperatures ideal for searing, browning and grilling. We also carry items from their Inocuivre range of copper pans, as well as a wide selection of baking and pastry tools.Shop De Buyer
